The brown of the tartan represents the muddy tidal waters of the Petitcodiac River, on whose banks the City of Moncton was founded,
Green, red and blue symbolise the Irish, the Scots and the Welsh respectively, and
Dark gold represents the remainder of the early settlers of Moncton; the Spanish, French, German, Dutch, etc...
